We encourage and assist the formation and development of local Friends of the Library groups. We foster and encourage cooperative efforts between citizens and libraries. We provide five free workshops each spring as an opportunity for Friends to exchange ideas, information and experiences. One workshop is held in each of the five FONCPL areas: Northeast, Southeast, Central, West Central and Mountain We keep our members informed about Friends issues and events with a quarterly newsletter and an electronic discussion list: NC-FRIENDS.
